VERY NICE PRO STREET, 351 V8, C6, FORD 9 INCH, EXTREMELY FAST, PRICED RIGHT!
This brutal 1968 Mustang fastback is not for the timid or meek. Packing a high-horsepower small block, a full race suspension, and an electric blue paint job, there's absolutely no way you can keep a low profile when you take it out on the road. On the other hand, there are probably only a handful of cars that can keep up with it on the street, so if you like being the alpha dog, this one packs one heck of a set of fangs.
First off, this car doesn't look like your average racer. The bodywork is actually very nicely finished with lots of time invested in making the modifications blend in. A cowl-induction hood is the most obvious alteration, and I have to assume that the rear quarters have been stretched to accommodate those massive meats, but the work was so well done that you'd have to park it next to a stock one to be sure. The vivid paint glows from within when the light hits it just right, and it hasn't been covered in stripes or sponsor decals like so many of the cars you see at the strip on test-and-tune night, so it actually looks very street-friendly and could even be a bit of a sleeper. All the Mustang details are there, from the GT grille with fog lamps and running pony emblem to the concave tail panel with 3-element taillights all wrapped with a tidy band of stainless, and everything is in great shape. Someone was sweating the details on this one.
The interior makes no attempt to keep things stock, but they did go to great lengths to make it comfortable and user-friendly for the street. Modern race buckets are upholstered in comfortable cloth and feature harnesses for both driver and passenger-a good idea given this car's performance potential. A full cage reinforces the chassis and provides safety for the occupants, but the door bars have been specifically designed to clear the stock door panels, so it feels very finished inside. Even the original gauges remain in place, augmented by aftermarket instruments in the center and a monster tach up top. There's no radio or heater, but you already knew that, and the trunk is full of fuel cell and an Optima battery.
For power, this car packs a pro-built 351 Windsor with an Edelbrock intake, big Holley 750 carburetor, and an MSD ignition system. The block wears blue paint that's both a good match for original Ford Blue and the blue bodywork, and the aluminum Ford Racing valve covers are appropriate. It's backed by a built manual valve body C6 3-speed automatic transmission and a narrowed 9-inch with 4.56 gears inside. An interesting 4-link setup with leaf springs plants those massive rear tires and the new exhaust system sounds simply magnificent. The stock front suspension is in place and runs 205/75/15 radials, while the massive rear Mickey Thompson tires measure 32x17.50-15, all of which are wrapped around a set of Weld Pro-Star aluminum wheels.
No, it ain't subtle, but it is one of the most entertaining cars we've ever featured. Professionally built and ready to rock, this is the Mustang that all the other cars are afraid of. Call today!
